Max Steel is the new action-adventure franchise aimed at boys aged 6-11. It’s been very popular since its launch on Nicktoons. This DVD includes the first three episodes of series one combined to create a feature length movie, Max Steel – Origins, and it tells the story of how 16-year-old Maxwell “Max” McGrath is thrown into a new life after moving with his mother to the small city of Copper Canyon.
Max combines his move to a new place with evading the super-villains hunting him down for a power inside him called TURBO (Tachyon Unlimited Radiant Bio-Optimized) energy, the most powerful energy in the universe. Steel, an intergalactic alien created by Max’s late father and who can only survive through Max’s TURBO energy, teaches Max how to control his powers and, with its own advanced technology, creates the armour that turns them into a superhero: Max Steel.
It’s exciting stuff. For adult tastes, it’s a bit formulaic, but if you have a child in this age group that loves action adventures, then they will enjoy this. This has hardly been out of the DVD player since it arrived.
